Cardiff Diocese: We believe in One Catholic and Apostolic Church

How did Christ leave his church on earth to organise itself? Why do we make great claims for the infallible authority of the Pope? Could our church be unified without a central authority? Is the Pope always infallible?

A monthly series for the Year of Faith, Rev Dr Gareth Leyshon explores the roots of why we believe the core things we hold as Catholics.

Location: Each talk is given twice, at 1.45 pm and 7.00 p.m., at St John Lloyd Church, Glan-Y-Mor Road, Rumney, CARDIFF CF3 1RQ.
